Bird Victims of Trapping




  • October 12, 2016 / Wisconsin

    The evidence is endless of the cruel indiscriminate suffering that trapping inflicts.
    Besides the animals, guess who pays for this? Certainly not the trappers.

  • August 28, 2016 / Hanover, Pennsylvania

    Our national symbol of freedom, a first year hatchling, will now, if lucky, have 30 years to educate the public why it will never again be free thanks to the irresponsible and selfish cruel act of trapping!

  • March 25, 2016 / Loa, Wayne County, Utah

    This disturbing image was sent to us today from the west side of the small town of Loa, Wayne County, Utah. Missing an entire foot from a trapping incident, this eagle will probably not survive due to infection and starvation.

  • March 1, 2016 / Sundre, Alberta Canada

    A pair of eagles, believed to be a mated pair, caught in snares set out for wolves as they hopped along the ground attracted to the bait.

  • February 16, 2016 / RISING SUN, Indiana

    One of America's most iconic symbols, a bald eagle, is currently being nursed back to health in a local animal rehab facility after being caught in a brutal trap.

  • February 7, 2016 / Near Turah, MT

    Another, known, Great Horned Owl in Montana caught in a leghold trap. This trap weighed basically as much as the Owl. In Montana, the majority of the "incidental" trapping victims, including Eagles, Owls, Mtn Lions, dogs, etc. have been deemed a result of legal trapping. Why?

  • February 3, 2016 / Clarenville

    Another known trapped Bald Eagle. This one relying on a landfill to eat as hunting for food with a trap attached is out of the question. Hopping along the ground to scavenge would also be difficult and is how it perhaps was caught in the leghold trap to begin with. Trapping is indiscriminate.
